We can all remember our first set of wheels. This past weekend I finalized the purchase of grandson Jared's first car--a 2000 Jeep Cherokee. Jared found it, loved it, and talked his Dad into buying it. That part was easy.
What wasn't so easy was buying the Jeep in Derek's name while he's in Iraq. Fortunately, I had power of attorney. Unfortunately, the banks weren't used to making loans when the loanholder was at war. Fortunately, they got through the paperwork and we got the deal done.
Last night Larry took Jared for his first drive in the Jeep. I stayed home--this was a guy thing. They came back grinning and happy, and Jared had completed his first loop of Joe's Run in his first vehicle.
